This adorable rabbit and her friends are capturing hearts by the sewing basket full! Join us to make her, her impeccable wardrobe and her friends. We even have knitting patterns to make that cardy she needs to go with her summer dress!
Already have a Luna? Then Rowan Redtail, who is full of mischief. could be your next addition. Surefooted and agile, Rowan had considered a career as a professional pickpocket because she was so nimble but had settled on being a tree surgeon instead. Or perhaps you like Catherina, the stylish cat with her flowing gown. Pick any one of the charming characters from Sarah Peel's Luna Lapin books, and we will help you to make them.
Perhaps, you are a fan of Simone Gooding's characters, Marmalade or Thistle, from her books Little Traveller and Making Marmalade. Come along and get some help creating these adorable characters.
These classes cater for all levels and allows for participants to choose which character or accessory they would like to make. Hand sewing recommended for the characters and machines are available when required for some clothing. You have to own a copy of the appropriate book to participate in the class - books for sale through us. See them here:
